  1. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi all a very basic question and a bit embarrasing after swapping from auto to manual gearbox, do I need to push the stick down to select reverse or just move it all the way over to the right then back as if selecting a 6th gear if it were fitted ? All the other gears seem to select nicely after...

    Hi, I have a problem with my T5.1 whereby if I put it in reverse I get a high pitch beeeeeep immediately. Although I have parking sensors it is not the same pitch of beep, plus it is continuous. If I take it out of reverse and then put it back in then the problem does not seem to recur. Any...

    Hi guys. I'm new to the forum. I að m wondering you guys know this. I recently got stuck in snow and noticed that the syncro was only engaging when the car was going forward. I've asked around and I'm getting mixed answers, no syncro in rev or that it's broken. Anyone here know?

    I need a method to see whats behind me especially when reversing into my driveway. I keep misjudging, thinking Im nice and tight, get out and Im miles away. Thinking about one of those rear mirrors that angle down fixed to the tailgate. Or a camera but I didn't really want a little tv screen...
  5. Engine & Gearbox
    Hi, People Is my gear box knackered or is it something else? Have a love hate thing with my van. A problem I have had right from the start is the reverse gear. Van is a T5 1.9 TDI manual 4 gear box. It will go into reverse smooth and no problem at all if the van is facing up a slope a fraction...

    Found that my lack of reverse lights is due to a lack of connector in the reverse light switch in the engine bay. Had a good look round but can't find the damn thing, just got the switch with nothing in it. Simple enough to slave in power to the switch then run it back to the reverse lights...
  7. Engine & Gearbox
    Just recently I've been getting a noise from the engine/gearbox area on acceleration, particularly in reverse. It sounds like something is rubbing and mimics the engine sound rather than rolling wheels. My local garage told me the noise was coming from inside the gearbox which was what I feared...

    Got a new RNS 510 in my 2013 T5 (tailgate). Apparently the 510 already coded for a reverse camera. Can someone advise a reversing camera please. Seems to be little on the internet about this?! Probably after one I can fit centrally in the tailgate trim drilling a hole. Thanks

    I've had a detachable Witter tow bar fitted to my 2010 T5, which has factory-fitted rear parking sensors. I was expecting the parking sensors ("beep-beep") to be deactivated with the tow bar in place. The fitter tells me I need to manually switch-off the rear parking sensors on the dash. I...

    Any one know why this would happen, reverse sensors worked fine, then got my right side break light fixed (Changed bulb) and now the reverse sensors are just on full beep when the van is in reverse!! So very annoying and not useful at all.

    Changed my fluid and filter and farewelled reverse. Wondering where to start diagnostically?? Only recently aquired this our first VW, with usual indicators of valve body wear with slow engagement of both forward and reverse, harsh engagement and harsh on changes between 1st and 2nd. But now...

    hi guys. Firstly does anyone know where i can get a genuine factory second hand reverse sensor loom from? Secondly - i have a sensor thats not working. i've checked the actual sensor itself by swapping it around into the other femal connectors and it's working fine. Therefore the problem is...
  16. Engine & Gearbox
    Hello, For some reason or another I lent my 96' Transporter (I'm in Montreal, Canada) to a neighbor, it is a manual 1.9 diesel. When I got in this morning to head to work the shifter felt funny, it is very "loose" and finally I was unable to push it down into reverse. I am able to move...
  17. Steering & Suspension
    Hey, Like it says on the tin… when I stick it in reverse and begin to reverse (not all the time), but sometimes I get a loud knock, almost like a sort of loud hollow metal bang? Just the once? I think it's when the steering is on full lock or thereabouts. Any ideas what this is a sign of or...
